The past is the past.

Had a couple of hard years. Ain't gonna lie about that. But 2015 is a new year with new adventures ahead. And that's how I have to look at this and meet it head on. I've spent 2 years just trying to tread water with everything that's been going on and now this year HAS to be the year I get back to ME. Can I get an AMEN?!?!

My Goals:
When I first joined Sparkpeople, I set my goal to be 25 lbs. off by 6/9/09 (that's our 25th anniversary!) - MET it!

After that, I set a 5 pound per month goal and accomplished that for about 5 months in a row for a total of 50 pounds within a 1 year period. Met it!

Last summer I made a goal to get Turbo Fire certified in the fall. After lots of training and practice - Met it!

I've fluctuated over the last year 20 pounds or so, so this spring I made a goal to lose them again. Met it!

Now I'm working on endurance & strength to get over everything my body has been through. Eventually I'm sure I'll focus on getting some more pounds off, but everything in it's time. Strong first, the rest will come.

Those are my goals. I'd appreciate your encouragement & support to hit them. Here I go!

My Program:
I have a handicapped son at home, so, while I tried to get to our local gym at times throughout the years, it just isn't the best option for me. I could sometimes, but not as often as I need to see the results my health needed. So, I found the perfect solution to my situation in at-home workout dvds. My favorite workouts are Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire, and Les Mills Pump. And after I improved my fitness level, I started jogging! I've found that I'm not a sprinter by any means, and the shorter, 5K type races aren't all that enjoyable for me, but I do like the longer distance running. I have done as much as 10 miles, but I really prefer 8 miles. I find that it's a great compliment to my dvd workouts!

Personal Information:
~My husband and I live on a farm.
~We have 5 children.
~Stay at home, work at home, homeschooling mom
~Planting a HUGE garden again this year
~Have 7 apple trees and 3 grape vines (planting raspberries this year, too!)
~We raise our own chickens for fresh eggs.
~Prefer more natural remedies to medicines (prescription or over the counter) anyday!

Other Information:
If I could, I'd either spend my time researching my ancestors/family online all day, or sew/quilt all day (with a little reading thrown in there). But I can't. I've tried that and all it got me was a big butt! LOL I have to get up and MOVE! I'd also like to bake/cook all day, but that gets me a big butt, too! :-(

Happy Sparkiversary! Has it been 6 years? What a ride! For the most part, I have kept most of the weight off, but I still have my ups and downs, It does seem like I always use the Winter to get into Summer shape. I have always appreciated the help and friendship of my Spark friends!

Make it a great year!
